Anders Myrvold signs try out contract

by Evan Andriopoulos
on

No…. journeyman Lørenskog (Oslo-North) defender Anders Myrvold last evening came to agreement on a try out contract with the New York Rangers. Myrvold a 6-1 195lber defender who has played in such outposts as Laval, AIK, Quebec-Colorado, Boston, Providence, Springfield and Nassau, L.I. and so on… has decided to check out the bright lights and big city of New York…or perhaps the less bright lights of Hartford in the American League.

Myrvold who split time with the Islanders and their AHL affiliate in Springfield had originally spurned an offer from Mike Milbury`s Islanders and then the Montreal Canadiens with hopes of landing the “big” deal in Switzerland. However that deal was pulled and Myrvold was left without a club and trained with the Vålerenga club of the Norwegian Elite League along with NHLer Espen Knutsen.

Myrvold a solid skating defender who is not afraid of making the rush or taking the body has a decent shot at making the Rangers this season, espcially after seeing who is who on their list of “prospects” and “incumbents”.

Aftenposten of Oslo reported that Myrvold turned down a guaranteed contract with the St.Louis Blues in order to have a shot with Eric Lindros and Mark Messier. Myrvold`s deal is reportedly worth about 5 million Kroners or 550k USD if he makes the club.

Where are they now?

Four former prospects who were let go, or lost by the Canadiens have received invitations to other NHL camps. Sean Dixon (6th round, 1999), who the Habs were unable to sign by the June 1st deadline of this year will be skating with Dallas during their upcoming camp. Terry Ryan (1st round, 1995), who remains an unrestricted free-agent was also invited to Dallas’ camp. The Stars’ camp begins September 11th.

Tyler Hanchuk (3rd round, 2000), who the Habs lost when they did not tender him a contract by the June 1st deadline was invited to Edmonton’s upcoming training camp. The Oilers’ camp officially begins September 8th.

Matt Carkner (2nd round, 1999), who like Dixon was lost when the Habs were unable to sign him by the June 1st deadline will be at the San Jose Sharks training camp. The Sharks signed Carkner quickly after he became an unrestricted free agent. The Sharks’ camp opens September 12th.

On the Farm

The Quebec Citadelles have invited both Mario Joly, and Sebastien Thinel to their upcoming training camp. Joly and Thinel are members of the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts, and will play in the Q if they don’t stick with the Citadelles.
